While Disney found a way to create villains that scared us all as children, the artist who works under the pseudonym Saint Hoax has found what scares us most as adults: bipartisan unrest, growing racial and socioeconomic tensions, and the current state of domestic and foreign affairs. Truly spooky stuff.

In Saint Hoax's gallery titled PoliVillains, they included this short poem discussing the series:

Once upon a fiery night
When leftists took an unholy right
And rightists took a wicked left
Agendas planned with utter deft
Bloody eyes and a vicious grin
A long road that is paved with sin
They don't cast spells, nor do they breathe fire
Characterized as meticulous liars
Intentions hidden behind a veil
There’s nothing fairy about that tale
They turn the page to a darker chapter
Where we live happy never after.

This is not to say that all politicians are villains or deserved to be vilified, but it is a good reminder that we should always be wary of people in power. What better way to teach this in a palatable way than through Disney fan art?
